Terracotta plant pots by Sid Henderson
Terracotta plant pots by Sid Henderson.
Sid is a queer artist based in Arizona, currently teaching ceramics for the City of Tucson's Parks and Recreation Department.
His work is informed by ancient Greek pottery and the images rendered on these pots are meant to be a light hearted documentation of the absurd things he's observed gay people doing during the 2020 lockdown, via the internet.
His pottery is thrown by hand on a wheel and follows the traditional Greek method. These pots were painted with slip (liquid clay) while they were still unfired, and then fired only once to their maximum temperature. Sid has also invented a special recipe for his terracotta to increase hardness and durability by ageing the clay outside for a few weeks, greatly improving the consistency.
